. with respect to who carried it out, that's an ongoing investigation. the fbi had sent individuals to libya repeatedly. we have some very good leads, but this is not something that, you know, i'm going to be at liberty to talk about right now. >> megyn: well, that was president obama roughly ten days ago discussing the terror attack in libya that killed four americans, almost four months ago now, including our ambassador. yesterday we learned the one and only suspect in custody so far has just been released by tunisian authorities citing a lack of evidence against him. so, where exactly are we in our fight for justice against the terrorists who killed our ambassador and three others? virginia congressman frank wolf is a republican and a member of the house appropriations committee. you're upset among other things, that this country, tunisia that released our one and only suspect got 300 plus million in aid, why are we funneling aid to them. >> we should not be and they're about to become a millennium and means advantages. we should be cutting off the aid. the fbi team was there for five wee

by the fbi and i cia couldn't get the results of the interview because they are worried about compromising the investigation. we are going back to treating crime. we don't know who changed the talking points to take al-qaeda references out of the talking points given susan rice three weeks before the election. we don't know anything. i don't want to hold up but i will until we get to the bottom of benghazi. in case the administration is listening to this program you are not going forward on these nominations until you share with the congress with really happened in benghazi. >> shannon: do you have support across the aisle at all for the proposition? i'm sure there are democrats who would also like answers to that question. >> i would be shocked if the democratic party would not at least join in the effort to find out what the president did during the attack, who did change the talking points. why are we now you back to a pre9/11 model of where the fbi can't talk to the cia. i hope they are interested in that. >> shannon: have you been given any timeline for the investigations wrapping up?
over each of the 166 counts against james holmes. we also heard from an fbi bomb tech, an atf supervisor, who testified about the extent to which holmes booby-trapped his apartment with homemade napalm, propane and gas triggers. in the two months leading up tote shooting holmes purchased 6295 rounds of ammunition as well as tear gas, ballistic gear and handcuffs. on cross-examinations holmes defense attorney asked one of the agents if there was anything in colorado law that prevented someone with mental illness from making any of these purchases and the agent said no, jenna. jenna: there comes up for one of the first times it is coming up in this preliminary hearing. we know the defense will be calling its own witness. tell us about who those people potentially could be and also how does that procedure, a defense calling witnesses in this preliminary hearing, how typical is that? >> that isn't something that usually happens but legal analysts are saying that what they think is happening here is that the defense is using this opportunity in the hearing to start the process of b
, james holmes. fbi agents have testified today that holmes had homemade napalm inside his apartment. remote-controlled triggers hidden in a garbage can outside. the trap was meant to injure police officers as holmes fired his guns in the movie theater five miles away. >>> and now we turn to other big news today. it is official. 2012 was the hottest year in the united states since weather scientists started keeping records. and hotter, not by a little, but by a landslide. tonight, abc's dan harris tells us about this new report and the red flags of warning about extreme heat all across the globe. >> oh, man. this is the last you'll see of your shed. >> reporter: the pictures coming out of australia tonight are apocalyptic. flames devouring homes, huge black and brown blossoms of smoke. a lone kangaroo hopping through a charred moonscape. firefighters contending with the worst possible conditions. >> these swirling, vicious winds, the soaring temperatures. >> incredible winds are making it that much tougher for firefighters on the front lines. >> reporter: it's so hot, the government
. can they help and protect themselves? >> reporter: they can to some extent. the fbi has the executive order to leave -- lead the defense against cyber-terrorism, they keep it a close secret. so companies like cloud strike, have come up with ways to thwart an attack, by feeding the wrong information to the hackers, which makes them doubt what hayare stealing and confuses them and renders the data worthless. this is one effort to combat china and russia, who are suspected of trying to steal america's business secrets or bring down critical structure. >> if this was the physical world and paratroopers descended over silicon valley and guys grabbed computers and ran out twould be missiles flying. but this happens every day in the cyber security space, where adversaries come in and steal everything and off to another country they go. there goes our intellectual property. >> reporter: that can include plans for weapons systems and less leathal products, soda recipes -- anything that makes america competitive. the sophisticated software that attacks our critical infrastructure is hit in the
defaulting on everything, and really i mean everything else. the fbi will shut down, people responsible for tracking down loose nuclear weapons, the court system closes its doors. the faa off line, parks closed, food safety inspections, they stop, nobody gets tax refunds or fixes your roads. it is bad, second, meanwhile, too, the financial markets will go into complete chaos, u.s. government debt is after all the safest investment in the world, so it is used as the benchmark for all other types of debt. what that means, when you buy a mortgage the government looks at what it pays to borrow and begins your estimate there. if we spike the treasury rate because nobody trusts our government anymore that spikes credit card rates and mortgage rates. not to mention all manner of trillions and trillions of dollars of weird financial derivatives that are also bench marked to treasuries. the damage to the economy on that would be unbelievable. and it would occur at every level from individuals looking for a loan to get a house to hedge funders trying to play the markets. so it would be like 2008
.r.a. can talk their stuff all day long, they're lies. ok? the f.b.i. statistics, statistics from around the world are evidence enough that there are too many guns in this country. we don't need assault weapons in this country. these people constantly, you know, they talk about the second amendment. mow of them don't really know the history of the second amendment. thomas jefferson the principle author of the second amendment believed that we should relook at the bill of rights every 20 years and see whether they needed to be tweaked. certainly in my estimation, this amendment needs to be tweaked. nobody intended, the framers never intended, this was about arming a militia against foreign invasion. it was not about our own government coming to get us, which a lot of these folks are talking about or just the right to bear any kind of arms and as many arms as you want. it's ridiculous. >> cenk: absolutely. the second component is mental health. a lot of republicans saying don't such guns, because the real problem is people who have mental illness so let's create a national database of thos
, fbi and new york state certified police firearms instructor, and spent 23 years in law enforcement on the city, federal and county level. and i can tell you that there's case law that came out in december of 2011, judge solomon in new york supreme court, new york county, ruled in the new york times versus n.y.p.d. in article foia action that active and retired law enforcement officers, not the just n.y.p.d. and active and retired government employees must be redacted from the list that the n.y.p.d. turned over to the new york times in their foia action, that speaks volumes towards case law and may work towards the pending legislation in the assembly and senate which in the justification clearly says that the exposure of this information does the record holder, their families and the public at large a great disservice and puts them at risk. >> let me dove-tail off this. yeah, you can clap. [applause] >> you know, you're a lawyer, you argue for a living and you're obviously very good at your job, you've been doing it for a long time. sometimes things come down as just the right thin
's the fbi that has the executive order to lead the defense against cyber terrorism from foreign states, some private companies are looking for attacks on their own and consulting firms come in. >> this happens every day, when adversaries come in and steal everything. >> and what they fear is the intellect. weapons, to stealth bombers and computer chips, and secret recipes and feed the wrong information to the hackers, confusing them. >> you can really start to change the table and bring some pain to the them. >> the idea to prevent attacks like the one iran has believed to have sprung on banks. >> most of these attack from machines, users home machines compromised by viruses or other malicious code that's been downloaded from websites, that's a major problem, harris. the risk there, millions of machines in all of our homes could be used to strike against our own country, harris. >> harris: all right. thank you very much, good to see you. people in one town can expect an extra headache trying it get to work tomorrow. take a look at why. that's an overpass that came crashing down, very inconve
you say drug use. those statistics are not kept by the fbi or by our own attorney general's office. >> you can't do it because you know you do. let's get to the -- >> -- no, wait a minute. i have worked on this whole issue with crystal meth in hawaii. and i will tell you the one thick that we have always recognized and we have always done is we have addressed it and we know where to start. that's when we have been successful. >> bill: mrs. congresswoman you are a good woman. you know you have a problem, which is why you are spending your time on it it now, i have got to get to jessica's law. are you kidding me? two year mandatory for child rape? 45 states have some kind of jessica's law which means that child rapist are given 15 to life if they commit that crime. hawaii won't even consider it. come on. have you got to get behind that. >> i will tell you, i will get behind it it. >> we are talking about a liberal hawaii. a liberal hawaii. >> we care about our elders. we care about those who need help. >> bill: conservative people care about their elders too. >> we have a very strong
ceiling. here's some of what would happen. the fbi would shut down, prisons won't operate, the court system closes, tax refunds won't go out, the faa would go off line. that's not even talking about what would happen in the financial markets, including the prospect of interest rates rising. do you feel comfortable -- >> but, chris, we've already addressed some of these things about making certain the interest is paid, making certain that we prioritize. you know, budgets are to be about priorities anyway. and i think that there is a way we're going to have to find a way forward, if you will, we're going to have to work through a way forward so that we pay all of our bills, so that we are able to meet what we have to meet as far as our needs go, and that we are reducing what the federal government spends. there's a lot of waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal spending system. everybody knows that. the time has come that everybody engage in this. the agencies, the bureaucracy, they've got to do their part on this. they just can't sit there and say, oh, you're cutting me because you're
debate, the fbi says background checks for firearms has soared some 39% in one month's time and that they hit a record high in the the month of december. while the government does not track how many guns are actually sold there are anecdotal reports from gun store owners and manufacturers that firearms are flying off the shelves. major manufacturer suggests that that trend is being reflected in their world as well and the background checks of course support that notion. and now to a murder mystery surrounding the death of a lottery winner. chicago resident kahn hit the jackpot last summer winning a million dollars on a scratch-off tickets. friends and family say he was ecstatic and 24 hours after state officials issued him a check for the winnings, police say kahn suddenly died a now, after initially they said it was of natural causes, they say in fact he was the victim of cyanide poisoning. trace gallagher has more, trace? >> reporter: and this one, megyn, caught the medical examiner off guard. when he bought that lottery ticket he just returned from a hajj pilgrimage, exce
or paying our soldiers or paying the fbi. these are choices that now becoming a little bit more real and i don't think there's anybody in the republicans -- well, there are a few but most people know this would be nuts. >> this is why congress is less popular now than getting simultaneous root canals ands colonoscopies and listening to nickelback. >> stephanie: not talking about you. >> i certainly hope not. >> stephanie: how does this play out? the exact same way? will it be 11th hour again? >> well, that wouldn't surprise me a bit. but the 11th hour is kind of -- not as precise as what it was with december 31st and january 1st. it is an estimate that it is february 15th. we won't know exactly. at some point if they get the printing press warmed up for the platinum coin -- >> stephanie: which, by the way, you should be on. absolutely. >> that would be one for the record books. that would be nice. i really don't think they can wait that long. i think they have to start -- we really should be negotiating now. of course, we're not in session this week because we worked so hard last week and
